Q&A Session: Be in This World as a Stranger

[Q1]: This conference was themed around understanding Zuhd, raqāʾiq and other inspiring introspective topics that bring one nearer to Allāh. However, in our community, sometimes we hear the chant: Manhaj, Manhaj, Manhaj, all you people talk about is Manhaj. Is this a valid claim, should communities be less focused on the affair of Manhaj? What have our scholars said about this matter? [Q2]: What is a scholar?

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اسْتَجِيبُوا لِلَّـهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ إِذَا دَعَاكُمْ لِمَا يُحْيِيكُمْ ۖ وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ اللَّـهَ يَحُولُ بَيْنَ الْمَرْءِ وَقَلْبِهِ وَأَنَّهُ إِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ O you who believe!

The Sunnah is a Clear Path

[Q1]: I live beside a masjid (IMO) which is a Ṣūfī hanafī masjid, is it obligatory for me to pray my ṣalāt at Masjid al-Furqān? [Q2]: There are some sisters and brothers who visit TROID for a lecture then they go to ḥizbī masājid for other talks, i.e. “Masjid Hopping” [Q3]: There are some who took part in a fitnah here some years ago, they occasionally come by,  when they are encouraged to make tawbah and bayān (clarification/retraction of those harms), they say tawbah is for Allāh (refusing to make open clarification)! [Q4]: What do you advise the brothers and sisters with in terms of seeking...

“And verily, We have sent among every Ummah (community, nation) a Messenger (proclaiming): “Worship Allāh (Alone), and avoid (or keep away from) Ṭāghūt [] (all false deities, etc. i.e. do not worship Ṭāghūt besides Allāh).” Then of them were some whom Allāh guided and of them were some upon whom the straying was justified. So travel through the land and see what was the end of those who denied (the truth).”  (An-al-Naḥl 16:36) “…The Prophet Mūsá (ʿalayhi salām) was ordered to go to Firʿawn and inform him of his transgressions. We have boundaries of tawḥīd which cannot be...
